Quoting Nicolas Spalinger (nicolas_spalinger at sil.org):

No longer:

W: ttf-sil-padauk source: out-of-date-standards-version 3.7.2 (current is 3.7.3)


But that one is not really crucial.

I however have doubts about the package description:

Description: smart Unicode font for Myanmar
 Padauk is a Myanmar font covering all currently used characters in the
 Myanmar block as specified in Unicode 5.1

To my understanding, "Myanmar" is a country and I therefore have
doubts about a font to be designed for a country. I'd expect it to be
designed for one or more languages.

So, either the font is designed for Burmese, the main language of
Myanmar, and the font should be advertised as a "font for
Burmese"....or it is designed for all (or seom) languages of Myanmar
and it should say something like "font for languages in Myanmar"

And, agin, mentioning the authors in debian/control does not seem
appropriate to me.
